Where do I find User ID?

Postby Lamboguy » Sat Jan 30, 2010 3:39 am

Hi Folks,

I did a search, but maybe my question is too basic for that. In phpBB3, where do I find a member's User ID? I'm assuming in the ACP, but I've looked and -- tho it's probably obvious -- I couldn't find it. (I can find User IP, but not User ID)

Thanks!

hover your mouse over the username and it will show it.

for instance if you hover over my user name here you will see:
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=182473

u=usersID

Ok, got it. Took me a bit, the data doesn't show up at all on Mozilla Firefox... and I finally see it at the bottom of IE7.

That should do it for me, thanks Robert.

So -- there's nowhere else to find it? Seems like a bit of digging for something so basic.

Thanks,

Fred

Regardless of what browser you are using, if you actually click on the user's name (to see their profile), you will see the "u=#####" string up in the address bar while you are on the profile page.
Why do you want the user ID? I don't recall phpBB ever asking for it anywhere.

just like in IE, it is an option to turn on the status bar at the bottom. It defaults to on for IE and for FF. So I guess you must have turned it off some time or the other.
